The Yawanawa have a profound knowledge in their
shamanic system kept by their initiates and shamans. The
study of Yawanawa spirituality begins with prayers and diets
and intense initiation processes mark the journey. Among the
sacred medicines of the Yawanawa people the Rumé or
Rumã as they call their Shamanic Snuff has a central place in
their culture. It is one of their main preparations of power.
Rapé has an ancestral legacy of healing existing since
immemorial times in their cosmology as related in their stories.
